Competition for the 1-inch sensors
Is the LX100 enough to defeat proposals Canon and Sony?
Panasonic finally, "I swept" launching the new Lumiksa LX100. The camera is based on the Four Thirds sensor with an effective resolution 13 megapixels – so we have some really concrete matrix that great should cope even in poor lighting conditions. If we will catch up yet clear (f / 1,7-2,8), wide-angle lens covering focal range of 24 to 75 mm (equivalent to full frame) and based on the 9-flap stop, we get an almost perfect compact. This is not the end of the revelations. The transmitter, which is supported by the image processor Venus Engine, it can also record video clips at a resolution of 4K (at a rate of 30 frames / sec.) And handle ISO sensitivity range from 100 to 25600th Some of you may wonder why such a large matrix zmieszczono only 13 million pixels – contrary to appearances, this is not good news. Larger size of a single pixel is likely to translate into a better ability sensitized, and so – the same – reduced image noise.
